Startime, the popular ‘vintage music’ show, makes it debut at The Verandah in Clarendon Park, on July 2. It is presented by Juici Patties. Today, associate sponsors Jamaica Observer publishes the first in a series of articles on the event.
Freddie McGregor was a toddler when he left Clarendon for Kingston to become a member of producer Clement Dodd’s emerging Studio One camp.
He returns to his parish as part of Startime’s ‘The Clarendon Connection,’ which also includes ska legend Derrick Morgan and The Clarendonians, comprising his close friends Peter Austin and Ernest Wilson.
“Clarendon is my birth parish, so it’s about going home to entertain my people and for me that’s a big deal,” said McGregor.
